Be it a single part, accessory, or complete rifle purchase, what is IYO the best decision you have ever made concerning the AR15 weapon system.

+1

For something more reasonable for most, its a toss up between a Tango Down vertical front grip or an EoTech.

Upgrading to a JARD 2 pound trigger.

Also buying sunshades for Leupold scope varmint AR15s.

And going through the NFA hoops to get a AAC M4-2000 suppressor. It is a great suppressor and works on my HK93 and Steyr AUG.

I'd like to second this, although, while intimidating, I really enjoy shooting Practical Rifle.

Marrying my wife and sticking by her through a lot of problems. She has bought me a Bushmaster, two Colt 6920s, a Springfield National Match M-1A, a SOCOM16, and now a Arms Tech Assault Rifle that is the cover of the January SWAT. Not bad.

Best: Building my own AR's

Worst: Getting a Bushmaster..

My best decision was about a year or more ago when I took my cousins advice which was..

"Take these spare AR parts of mine, buy everything else ya need and build yourself an AR"

I took his advice and after building my first AR I quickly realized I was addicted as I already have plans for another AR.

Best thing I've bought for the my ar after building it basically stock was definately the SPR grip..can't say enough good things about that grip.

Instead of drinking beer and doing other stupid things at my age (19) I decided to build AR's, buy different guns, and ride my dirtbike (with the way I ride, this might not be considered a smart decision).

So, instead of getting drunk or doing other drugs kids my age do, I have;
4 AR's
1 AK
1 M14
1 SKS
1 XD40
1 Armi Jager A.P 15
1 Marlin Model 60
1 Remington 11-48
1 Remington 870
1 NEF 20ga.
1 Winchester Model 12 16ga.
1 Savage 842
and a 2003 KX250.

I have plans for another 1 or 2 AR's and possibly a Sig 226 in .40S&W and I'm saving for the possible SCAR-L.

Pretty much my justification for my hobbies to my family. I am 21 and haven't gotten into that dumb crap except for a select few times. And found it stupid afterwards. So instead I have...

1- Turbo Dodge Lebaron
1- AR
1- SKS
1- Rem 870

And I plan to add a USP and probably another AR, and a supressor.

To build an SBR
Link Posted: 1/24/2006 11:14:49 PM EDT
-Shooting in an IDPA style Rifle League every Friday night.
-Buying an Aimpoint. (decreased my time over my Elcan)
-Buying a Sig 226 (I know, not AR related)
-Ditching my cheapo steel mags for aluminum ones. (lighter, more reliable)
-Putting magpul followers in my league mags. (no failures yet)
-Sticking to brass cased ammo that's factory firsts (No failures like I had with factory reloads and steel cased ammo, not as smokey and acrid smelling.)
-Buying a magalula (saves your thumbs, gives you more trigger time, quickly can unload mags.)
-Buying a Dewey cleaning rod. (no worries about damaging bore, much stronger and easier to use than sectional cleaning rods)
-Ditching cheapo optics for high quality optics (they'll last longer, have better clarity and make you much happier in the long run.)
-Buying a Vltor modstock. (Positive cheekweld with storage compartments, high quality, which has shown little wear and is still fairly tight.)
-Stopped caring about scratches, used/abused AR and began to have fun with it.
-buy as much ammo as possible and shoot as much as possible.

Not AR related, but shooting related. I bought a Remington 700 with the5-R bbl and put a nice 4.5-14 leupold VX-III on it. That rifle shoots way better (with the right ammo) than I can and has helped with my marksmanship a lot. A truly accurate rifle can help you identify your weaknesses by reducing other factors. I've shot a 10rd group with it at 200yds that would fit under a quarter. (around .5MOA) Before that, 2-3MOA groups with my M4gery was the best I shot. Before you buy another AR, add a high quality bolt gun to your collection. You won't regret it.

Realizing that my Democratic views were all wrong, and in my mid 40's I switched parties.
I had been non-gun (me owning any) most of my life.
Now I own an impressive collection (growing rapidly) that I will fight tooth and nail to keep!
My (Our) 2nd amendment rights are very important and I will do my part to keep them!

Buying the 2005 Special Edition Black Rifle for my first AR-15.

A pure joy to shoot and a real score to get a 14.5 with 1:7 right off the bat.
Hogue grip is sublime for me. Need it, love it, can't live without Hogue on all my stuff, from my 10/22 to my P226.

As for really nice products for the money...
1)Adventure Line Side Saddles, during
my 870/12 ga kick.
2) My new carbine carry case from
Elite Tactical Sources for $47 plus shipping...

I'm sure there are more but I can't remember
them now...
